New York: Late at night, the rain pouring down, a well-dressed woman in her sixties stands in a doorway, a gun in her purse, waiting for a Senator to come home. Washington, D.C.: The phone rings on the desk of Blake Johnson, head of the White House department known as The Basement. The President wants him now. London: The Prime Minister sits thinking of Sean Dillon, the one-time terrorist, now his most effective, if not exactly trusted, operative. It'll have to be Dillon, he thinks. There's no one else. Someone is killing off the members of a splinter group known as the Sons of Erin, normally not a cause for much concern, but the consequences are much greater than anyone realizes. For in these actions lie the seeds of disaster: the fall of two governments, the derailing of the Irish peace process. Dillon and Johnson must stop this unknown assassin, the heads of state agree, quickly, quietly, before all hell breaks loose... But they may already be too late. For in the Manhattan night, the silver-haired woman smiles, adjusts her rain hat more snugly on her head, and steps out into the street. Four down, she thinks. Three to go.

    " Another fun book from Jack Higgins. Dillon is taking care of business as usual with his quick wit and fast guns. London black ops working with US black ops in the great Higgins style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/14/2013

    " Good Jack Higgins novel in the Sean Dillon series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 12/3/2013

    " A very simplistic story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 11/21/2013

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Sean Dillon and co.; woman whose son was killed by Irish terrorists starts hunting down those responsible, including a source within the White House. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 6/15/2013

    " Simple story, simple plot, just enough murder and mayhem to make it a satisfying read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Furie | 5/26/2013

    " Mom goes on a revenge shooting spree. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerald Hoskelis | 1/31/2013

    " Good novel just like the others "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/12/2013

    " A comfortable international spy story with a refreshing "old lady hero" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas | 9/19/2012

    " This was the second Jack Higgins novel I read. This one included another character, Blake Johnson who works for the US President whereas Sean Dillon is an operative for the PM. I enjoy the books, lots of intrique and espionge. The language is tame (only a little and in character) and no sex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 8/21/2012

    " Interesting book. Liked the protagonist. I had a bit of a hard time following some of the characters, though. Maybe its me, but from reading the back cover it looks like some of these same characters have been in earlier books. Maybe I was supposed to understand them from something I hadn't read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob | 4/13/2012

    " Cool. Kept me on the edge of my seat!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Hammond | 3/26/2012

    " The Irish peace process is at risk in this straight-forward thriller. The American President and the English Prime Minister have to stop someone who's been gunning down the Sons of Erin, a terrorist group famous for gunning down others. Yet again, Sean Dillon, that nine-lived devil, does his thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen | 3/15/2012

    " I love Higgins. I can go into a completely different world - one of espionage, mafia etc. and enjoy every relaxing minute. A good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Teresa | 7/14/2011

    " I gave him two chances and this author just did nothing for me. I had his books figured out less than half way through and the rest was just slow painful filler to the obvious conclusion. Not a fan. "
